Description & Features

Ubiquiti Networks PBE-5AC-500 PowerBeam ac High-Performance Outdoor airMAX ac Bridge (5 GHz | 450+ Mbps | 25+ km Range)
Ubiquiti Networks launches the latest generation of airMAX CPE (Customer Premises Equipment), the PowerBeam ac. The PowerBeam ac directs RF energy in a tighter beamwidth. With the focus in one direction, the PowerBeam ac blocks or spatially filters out noise, so noise immunity is improved. This feature is especially important in an area crowded with other RF signals of the same or similar frequency. Both the radio and antenna are combined to create a more efficient and compact CPE that gets maximum gain. Providing high performance and an innovative form factor, the PowerBeam ac is versatile and cost‑effective to deploy.

airOS 7 Software
Sporting an all-new design for improved usability, airOS v7 is the revolutionary operating system for Ubiquiti airMAX ac products. Among its power wireless features are: airMAX ac protocol support, long-range Point-to-Point (PtP) link mode, selectable channel width, automatic channel selection, transmit power control, automatic distance selection (ACK Timing), and strongest WPA2 security. The usability enhancements include: dynamic configuration changes, instant input validation, HTML5 technology, optimization for mobile devices, and detailed device statistics. Additionally, it is equipped with a comprehensive array of diagnostic tools, including Ethernet cabling test, RF diagnostics, and airView Spectrum Analyzer.

Advanced RF Analytics
airMAX ac devices feature a multi-radio architecture to power a revolutionary RF analytics engine. An independent processor on the PCBA powers a second, dedicated radio, which persistently analyzes the full 5 GHz spectrum and every received symbol to provide you with the most advanced RF analytics in the industry. Data from the spectrum analysis and RF performance monitoring is displayed on the Main tab and airView Spectrum Analyzer of airOS V7.

Spectral Analysis
Available with a firmware upgrade to airOS v7.1, airView provides powerful spectrum analyzer functionality, eliminating the need to rent or purchase additional equipment for conducting site surveys. airView allows you to identify noise signatures and plan your networks to minimize noise interference. It constantly monitors environmental noise, and collects energy data points in real-time spectral views. What’s more, it helps optimize channel selection, network design, and wireless performance. airView runs in the background without disabling the wireless link, so there is no disruption to the network.

Powerfully scale businesses with airCRM, a suite of WISP applications that helps to manage the business. airCRM allows you to provision, monitor, and manage all devices from a central interface. Enjoy quicker deploy ents, healthier networks, and faster customer service response times. A streamlined billing and customer management solution also delivers automated invoicing, payment reminders, and credit card processing for the owner.

airMAX ac TDMA Technology
Unlike standard Wi-Fi protocol, Ubiquiti’s Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) airMAX protocol allows each client to send and receive data using pre-designated time slots scheduled by an intelligent AP controller. This time slot method eliminates hidden node collisions and maximizes airtime efficiency, so airMAX technology provides performance improvements in latency, noise immunity, scalability, and throughput compared to other outdoor systems in its class. The custom silicon provides hardware acceleration capabilities to the airMAX scheduler, to support the high data rates and dense modulation used in airMAX ac technology.

Throughput Breakthrough
airMAX ac supports high data rates, which require dense modulation: 256QAM – a significant increase from 64QAM, which is used in airMAX. With their use of proprietary airMAX ac technology, airMAX ac products supports up to 450+ Mbps real TCP/IP throughput – up to triple the throughput of standard airMAX products.

Incredible Antenna “Beam” Performance
The form factor of the PowerBeam ac features the highest gain for its size. The PowerBeam ac’s excellent beam directivity provides the best performance in high-noise environments. Incorporating a dish reflector design with proprietary airMAX ac technology, the PowerBeam ac is ideal for CPE deployments requiring maximum performance.

Integrated Radio Design
Ubiquiti’s InnerFeed technology integrates the radio into the feedhorn of an antenna, so there is no need for cables to connect the radio to the antenna. This improves performance because it eliminates cable losses. The PowerBeam ac supports up to 450+ Mbps real TCP/IP throughput and launches with PtP functionality, with a client mode feature to be added with a future firmware upgrade.

Innovative Mechanical Design
The PowerBeam ac can be conveniently pole-mounted, with just a single wrench needed to do so. A built-in mechanical tilt is attained via a mounting bracket of the offers 20° of uptilt and 10° of downtilt. If needed, the antenna feed can be detached with the push of a button.

Industrial-Strength Construction
The dish and brackets of the PowerBeam are made of galvanized steel that is powder-coated for superior corrosion resistance. The pole bracket design prevents paint from being removed from the metal brackets for improved corrosion resistance. The fasteners are GEOMET-coated for improved corrosion resistance when compared with zinc-plated fasteners. Finally, the unique, protective radome shields the radio from the elements. All in all, such industrial-strength construction is ideal for use in nature's harshest elements.

In the Box
Included with the PowerBeam ac is, (1) Dish Reflector, (1) Radome, (1) antenna Feed, (1) Rear Housing, (1) Dish Bracket, (1) Pole Clamp, (1) U-Bolt, (2) M8 Flange Nuts, (1) Gigabit PoE Adapter, (1) Power Cord, and Quick Start Guide.
